tv. we will have to move on to steve in northampton, pa., on the independent line. caller: i have been working since i was 18, and i am now 50. every year since then everything with the health insurance has been pretty good for me and my family. but what i do not understand is what the health-care mandates and insurance companies receiving, which is essentially a tax from each individual in the country, to offset other cost for insurance companies, and i know the insurance companies to a lot of experimentation and stuff like that for future cures, and they do spend the money in those areas, but what i am concerned about is our government has not shown the bill to the people in fall of what exactly the expenses are going into the future. up in canada i know for a fact that if i was in an accident some more or had a fishing accident, and i was from out of the country, they would treat me first. i know for a fact that through the government health care of their, their tax system is believe each family's budget dry. they have a waiting period sometimes where you could be in the hospit
